I wanted to share some info for the Simmers hope you don't mind crinrict
After doing a restore on my computer reinstalling that patch with a manual install, uninstalling Origin and trying everything that I could think of to no avail I finally went and got the CCleaner and it fixed my game and it is now working so if anyone wants to get this program it's at this page.
Also wanted to post that there is something that I noticed maybe you would understand this better crinrict than me but my numbers for my launcher and my friends whose game also weren't working had a different number compared to the Simmers whose game worked.
The Simmers whose game worked had these numbers 11.0.84.015017
but my numbers which are still the same though is 11.0.84.015001 and my friend whose laptop wouldn't work had the same numbers as me yet her desktop that worked had the first set of numbers. Sorry I know this is confusing but hopefully this can help, not sure but thought I would mention it.

I'm not sure when this issue started in my game, just that last night was the first I've noticed it. It may have nothing to do with the patch but thought I'd mention it just in case it does. I played with the patched game for a little while last night (first time) and it ran beautifully until I had my sims cuddle on the sofa. The male's arm went through his girlfriend's neck instead of behind it. It wasn't just slightly through her neck, it was right through the middle and very freaky looking. I can live with it since my sims don't cuddle much but maybe you can file it away somewhere in case it's patch related and other simmers run into this problem. Thanks for all your help!
Oh, almost forgot to answer these questions:
1. Are you using any Custom Content or mods ? yes, mods & few cc objects, mostly hair 2. If you are using mods, are you using any of the 'big ones' like Awesome Mod or Twallan’s modsTwallan's updated Story Progression, MC, Overwatch. Also his traffic mod and the updated version of velocitygrass "only important memories" mod. Removed them to desktop before patching, didn't replace until updates were available. 3. If you're not using mod, did you never use them or did you take them out for the EP (as you are supposed to do) 4. Do you have Showtime or just the Patch ?patch 5. Did you start a new game for Showtime or are you playing an existing ones ?new 6. What town are you currently playing ? EA or Custom ? Custom 7. What is your Operating System (Mac, XP, Vista, Win 7) W7 64bit 8. Did you disable SimPort ? 9. Did you disable the Social Features ? no but I will try that
I also have the same problem! When in Create A Sim the color is green or pale but in the game, it is normal. I downloaded the latest patch which allows you to log-in in the game, and this happens! Please help!!
I didn't read this entire 9 page post. After patching I have Store Hairstyles missing in CAS...not all but the ones I intended to use.
I haven't checked if other Store Items are missing. But I did see a few objects still visible in buymode, I'm not sure they are all there, I will have to go through my build/buy mode catalog.
I can't understand why some hairstyles are still in CAS and then some are not. What's up with that?
ETA: I don't have third party cc, just store items. Upset my store hairstyles are missing and have to reinstall those, I guess.
ETA: This was a saved game currently playing in Hidden Springs, I haven't check if other worlds' to see if Sims will not have these hairstyles on their heads in other worlds...as I used them in other worlds. No longer in CAS for Hidden Springs, not sure if they are available in other worlds.

@BD5141: This is just the region code. Nothing to worry about.
1 = DVD Version
17 = Download Version
@GurlGamer05: Good to hear
@BrandyD83: thanks for the feedback. I'll add some solutions to the first page later
@eilian: Thanks for the report. I'll keep it in mind if more have the issue. It might just be a random animation glitch
@xorty: What's your graphic card ? There's a thread linked on the first page for the issue. Could you post your details there ?
@Cinebar: Uninstalling Store Stuff is a common issue. Try reinstalling them (and reading the first page usually is enough for my bug threads, at least in the beginning)
@HollyZee: Good to hear. Random glitch then.
It will start to get busy here soon and I'm still on a limited schedule, so please read the first page. Do not report things that are already there unless you have extra info to add. I will start posting solutions as soon as they are available.
Please read the rules and provide the infos asked for in the second post. It will make my life a lot easier.
Please post crashing issue in the technical forums. There are a few tips on the first page as well. There are various reasons for those and I just don't have the time to go through all of them with you. There's also a tool called the crash log analyzer over at ModTheSims and Ford is the best person to help you with those.
